Cape Town’s very own, Chris Bertish has won the big wave 2010 Mavericks Surf Contest® held in Half Moon Bay, California.
Ahoy bru. Who’s your daddy.
Surfers who took part reckon it was some of the biggest waves they have ever seen in a competition while several spectators suffered serious injures when massive waves knocked dozens off a seawall. Check it.
Excuse me while i walk around the room until my balls stop tingling.
Bertish bagged $50 000 for his effort and Maverickssurf.com had the following props to hand out:
“2008 Champion Greg Long summed up the day perfectly while passing along the Jim Beam Champion’s jersey to Bertish. “The entire book of big wave surfing was rewritten today.” Bertish, a native of Cape Town, South Africa was overcome with emotion, adding, “It was an honor just to be here today and paddle out with these other guys. I flew 36 hours to be here, and this has been a dream come true.” [maverickssurf]
“A native of Cape Town“. Like beautiful angel music to my ears.
Cheers. Thanks for coming.
